BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

New job title: Senior vp, property/casualty with Hilb Rogal & Hobbs Co. in Milwaukee.

Start date: Feb. 7

Previous position: Senior vp, property practice leader with Marsh Inc. in Milwaukee.

Reason for the change: I switched jobs for a better opportunity to focus on the needs of my clients and potential clients.

Vital statistics: I graduated from Oklahoma State University with a B.S. in fire protection and safety engineering. Before Marsh, I worked at Kemper, Hartford Specialty and AIG (Starr Tech), with duties including loss prevention, underwriting, marketing, new business development and management.

Goals for new position: My goals are to assist HRH in becoming the pre-eminent property/casualty brokerage/risk management consulting firm in Wisconsin by maintaining our focus on our clients and delivering the best resources and solutions to them.

First time in the job market: My first-ever job was working at a pharmacy in high school.

Top advice: The best advice I ever received was from Jess Pinson, at Starr Tech in Dallas, who hired me from college: When meeting someone, always be sincere, look them square in the eye and have a solid handshake. After that, anything is possible.

Outside the industry, a dream job: My dream job outside of insurance would be to discover/manage new talent in the music industry.
